Religious Humor. It Writes Itself.

Spacey C

LONDON (AP) — The Catholic Church of England said Saturday it has contacted the Holy See to ask if the papal knighthood awarded to late television star Jimmy Savile could be posthumously removed following sexual abuse allegations.

The head of the church, the Archbishop of Westminster Vincent Nichol, wrote to Vatican officials last week with the request in recognition of the "deep distress" of the victims allegedly abused by Savile, a well-known BBC children's television host who died last year at age 84.

Police believe Savile to be one of the most prolific sex offenders in recent history, with a "staggering number" of people reporting abuses by him after his death.

Some 300 potential victims have come forward with abuse allegations, police said. Most of them say they were abused by Savile, but some say they were abused by other people,Metropolitan Police said Friday.

Savile was made a Knight Commander of St Gregory the Great by Pope John Paul II in 1990 for his charity work.

He was also knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for his services to charity and entertainment.

I don't see why this is humorous, or what point it proves. It's an awful story, nothing else.

The story itself is very sad. The humor is that the Catholic church feels they have the power to make people Saints and lovce to heap shameless alcalodes on mere mortals, apparently without a background check, . Yet they call their pope Holy, never mind tho he was a Nazi youth.

Also, never mind the priests molesting kids and just being moved to different churches and hidden.

The Church, with news like this, is getting what it deserves.

Spin it all you want. Your anti-religion (unless the religion is Islam). Prove me wrong by posting something anti-Islamic.

I`ll wait.

Islam is just as horrifying, but since I live in a country where I generally don't have to deal with it, ,I honestly don't give it much thought. But in this country, one of these religious idiots can actually be president.You folks have been fooled into thinking Islam is your boogeyman, when Christianity had and will continue to kill more people by far across the globe and rape you children when you drop them off with the priests to go have a beer.

Wrong Pope numnuts, if you're going to be a bigot, at least try to be accurate.

So Im a bigot because I don't like ruthless greedy people who excel at lying and molesting children.

and your current pope, Benidict was indeed a member of the Hitler youth. Your former popes and bishops even blessed Nazi troops.
